  • Grass clippings / Flowers / Weeds / Leaves
  • Small branches and twigs
  • Dog droppings / Meat / Fish / Prawn shells
  • Coffee grounds, tea bags
  • Egg shells, hair, feathers
  • Tissues, paper towels / Soiled paper for wrapping food

What can’t go in the bin? - If in doubt leave it out and put it in the red-lidded landfill bin

  • Recyclables
  • Garbage
  • Nappies
  • Garden post and hoses
  • String, twine or wire
  • Syringes
  • Soil, stones, brick or concrete

Handy hints

  • Place these items loose in the bin and do not compact as the bin may not empty.
  • If you line the bottom of your bin with leaves, lawn clippings are less likely to stick to the bottom.
  • Strictly no plastics or other household garbage in this bin as it will reduce the ability of this material to be used for compost.
  • Do not place garbage, rocks, stumps, plastic shopping bags, plastics, bricks, building material, nappies, car parts, glass or scrap metal in your green bin.
